Chef Mike Garber is the most underrated chef in Los Angeles, he and Matthew Kaner have created a sanctuary space for people who love food & wine.
Go tonight, it will change your life.

After an event in Glendale, I had a large group of about 21 who wanted to get together at table, enjoy wine, food and each other's company. Arrangements were made a few weeks before with Sophie and Matt. They provided a terrific experience and made sure we were taken care of and comfortable. Much gratitude to them to help make memories for me and my group of friends.

I give this restaurant high ratings because it delivers such a welcome experience - food, ambiance, service - in a quieter neighborhood. I appreciate that they've decided to give their attention to a limited number of wines and dishes. We've been twice, with two different sets of friends, and each time our table has been pleased. Just when I thought I was over the repetitive Brussel Sprout, they served a bowl that was like BS popcorn! I would go back for the fries alone....and a glass of wine.

Such a nice evening at Good Measure. The space is lovely with enough space between tables for good conversation. The service was generous - they always offer a taste of the wine you want to try. They obviously have a passion and care about their customers. The food is yummy.

I hate giving bad reviews to restaurants but I can’t let this one go. I was super excited to try and have dinner at Good Measure because of all these great reviews in Yelp. So I said let’s give it a try. So we went for dinner a couple of days ago, and I would say that their food DID NOT measure at all!
We ordered the Coq Au Vin and the chicken was so bland and didn’t taste like anything French dish at all! I am so sad for this restaurant, because I am not sure where they are going with their dishes? If French or American?
The grilled octopus was so chewy and lacking flavor and not grilled at all! Everything was bland and blah!!!
We are foodies so we know exactly what good food taste like. We know exactly where to go for a particular dish.

I hope that they check or revise their menu and maybe find a real French chef.

Nestor, first off I wanted to thank you for dining with us at Good Measure. Our "ON TOUR" part of the menu is currently inspired by French dishes, still executed by our chef, Mike Garber. We find inspiration in food made in wine country all around the world, and we wanted the menu to showcase this. I am sad to hear that you feel our food didn't measure up. Hopefully you'll give us another chance. Best, -Matthew Kaner (Owner | Good Measure)

We loved our first dinner at Good Measure. Service was attentive. Atmosphere was lively. A restaurant with a glass front probably ought to invest in some tapestry or curtains to help absorb & deaden the bouncing sound of voices and glassware. In any case, we enjoyed two small plates that we shared -- Grilled Octopus, with barbecued squash, red pepper aioli, and pureed eggplant, was cooked to perfection, succulent & soft on the inside. And, the shaved raw cauliflower and watermelon radish salad topped with pine nuts, raisins and a champagne vinaigrette, which was delightful. My wife enjoyed the wild mushroom risotto as her main. I had a marvelous preparation of grilled whole branzino, filleted, seved in a beurre blanc sauce, with shaved fennel and slices of blood orange and lemon cooked inside. lovely. Wine options were good. Although the chardonnay we had was served too cold for being able to taste the favors with food. Still, Good Measure jumps to the top of our list as an inexpensive (dinner for 2 with wine cost @$120.00), casual neighborhood favorite.

Loved this place! Food was delicious and not ridiculously expensive - < $100 for 2, with 2 drinks each, 2 appetizers, and 2 main courses. Comfortably busy. Attentive service. Highly recommend the branzino. Will come back with vegan daughter, as many vegan options.

Good Measure is a comfortable small plates restaurant offering boutique wines by the glass or bottle. Welcome lighting, comfortable seating, and a smart, judiciously sized menu accommodate most tastes and, in our case, assured quality in each plate. We literally had soup to nuts - with fish, meat, vegetables and dessert. The semifreddo was 'meraviglioso.'

My wife and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary at Good Measure and it was the perfect spot. We loved the wine selection and the cheese board was one of the best we had ever had. We both loved our meal and shared everything that came to the table. Our waiter even helped us find the perfect wine by letting us taste 5 different kinds before landing our our favorite. The parking here also couldn't be easier, tons of open spots behind the restaurant made for a perfect start of the night. Go check this place out, you won't be disappointed.

We had a very good meal at Good Measure, going after reading about this place twice in two different magazines in the same week. We had grilled octopus, the charcuterie, persimmon speck and burrata salad, chickpea fries, and the crispy pork rillette. All were really well prepared and delicious. In fact, we liked the crispy pork rillette and the octopus so much we ordered two more plates! I'd dare say the octopus was just about the most tender of any octopus dish I've ever eaten--and I have a lot. The char on the octopus was perfect. They have a great wine list (they don't have a license to serve spirits) and wine we had with our meal was different from ordinary offerings and quite good. Will definitely be going back here.
